Hotel Hermes

I'm not sure which moves me to greater despair; the Mail Online's wildly inaccurate photo captions or typical lost-the-plot comments by its readers such as:

"Keep it and convert it to a prison ship to augment our overcrowded prison system. We might then see fewer suspended sentences."

"A fine vessel of such capacity may have proved invaluable in performing one last service to Britain in helping illegal-immigrants to return to their homes en-mass."​

The RAF might well be interested in the hotel-ship proposal.
Firstly, it could divert funds from the RN by selling off the QE class early as commercial ventures.
Secondly, in a worst case scenario, it could provide a blueprint for how the ships should be refitted should the RAF actually be required to serve in them.
